Wicked Plants: The Exhibit

Delaware Museum of Natural History

Tue
Family Focused INbudget
#ALLinFun (Family Focused), #INbudget ($0-$10), Museum Exhibitions

Inspired by author Amy Stewart’s best-selling book Wicked Plants: The Weed that Killed Lincoln’s Mother and other Botanical Atrocities, this fun-filled, family-friendly traveling exhibit gives visitors a safe, hands-on experience with some of the world’s most diabolical botanicals. Thought-provoking and educational, Wicked Plants showcases plants associated with a myriad of health effects, including pain, addiction, obesity, allergies, cognitive impairment and even death!

Two- and three-dimensional interactives fill a Victorian-era ramshackle home, where visitors travel from room to room and learn about various poisonous plants that may be lurking in their homes and backyards. History, medicine, science, legend and lore are brought together to present a treasure trove of bloodcurdling botany that will entertain, alarm and enlighten.

Hamilton and Burr: Who Wrote Their Stories?

Winterthur Museum, Garden & Library

Aug
27
Tue
History, Museum Exhibitions

The hit Broadway musical Hamilton sparked renewed interest in the Founding Father and his relationship with Aaron Burr, whom he infamously dueled with on July 11, 1804. Opening on the 215th anniversary of the duel, our exhibit picks up where Lin-Manuel Miranda’s musical left off and examines how Alexander Hamilton’s and Burr’s legacies were shaped by other Founding Fathers, a wife, a daughter, historical documents, and yes, even an enormously successful, modern-day musical.

Looking for something fun and educational to do with the kids while they're out of school for the summer? During this year's Terrific Tuesdays we begin with the pre-historic era, inspired by some fun fossils recently “discovered” on our patio, then zoom forward to 1600.  From that point, we advance 50 years each week, exploring some of the customs, discoveries, and otherwise momentous moments along the way.
 
Special guests will be on hand to highlight skills and trades from the past and present.
 
Each week will feature a different time period and a different special guest:
 
July 2: Pre-History
 
July 9: 1600-1650
 
July 16: 1650-1700
 
July 23: 1700-1750
 
July 30: 1750-1800
 
August 6: 1800-1850
 
August 13: 1850-1900
 
August 20: 1900-1950
